No worries. That's what we're here for. Those guys at 270 long range or whatever the name of the company is put some serious R&D into those rifles and it shows. They seem to be a very nice system, and if I had an extra 10 grand or so lying around, I'd pick one up.

But honestly, you can't really go wrong with either a DI or Piston gun. Both have pros and cons. I bet if you got a piston upper( I wouldn't do a conversion), you'd be happy, and I bet if you stuck with DI, you'd be happy too.

Ah, that's a very good point, hadn't thought of that. You might end up having to do a conversion then. Unless someone knows of a piston setup with a linger heavy barrel.
